Raúl Arriaga brings a unique perspective to his thriving real estate career. As someone who has seen the value of achieving the American dream of home ownership through life’s experiences and helping clients, he has taken this passion to the people and is in the top 1% of producers in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area he serves. Today, he runs the Arriaga Group, which he founded in 2012 and has helped hundreds of clients since this time. There is a wide variety of individuals that Raúl works with locally and internationally, including diplomats, entrepreneurs, executives, athletes, business owners, organizations, and individual families. He helps them secure real estate that meets their specific needs, large or small. Being bilingual is also helpful. Raúl is fluent in Spanish and English. His extensive designations lend to his expertise and include: CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist), SRS (Seller Representative Specialist), ALHS (Accredited Luxury Home Specialist), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representation), TRC (Transnational Referral Certification) and I.R.E.S.

Raúl is a sought-out expert in his field, having been quoted extensively for his expert opinion and experiences. He’s also a published author, having released the book, The Ultimate Guide to Dallas Real Estate, in 2014. Now he’s also a co-author who has contributed a chapter in the exciting book Real Estate GameChangers. According to Raúl, “These opportunities to reach out to people internationally and show them the unique opportunities that exist for people from all countries in America’s real estate market is one I appreciate. I’m so passionate about this and always welcome an opportunity to engage with a diverse group of immigrants who have an opportunity for something more in America. These are established and skilled people much of the time.” Everything Raúl accomplishes takes hard work, and he had no better role model to show bravery and resilience than his mother, Audelia. Raising nine children in the U.S. and Mexico, hoping for them to have the best opportunities, wasn’t always easy. But according to Raúl, “She is the hardest working woman I have ever known and will ever know.” Raúl doesn’t take anything for granted, from his clients to his son Maximo. Opportunities to help exist everywhere. One of his favorite involvements is mentoring ESL (English as a Second Language) students, helping them complete high school and consider pursuing higher education. He is also actively involved in the community, helping new immigrants better understand and integrate into their new communities through social, cultural, and educational events. In his free time, Raúl loves traveling and experiencing different cultures. He’s an avid follower of Formula 1 racing, passionate about soccer, enjoys extreme sports, plus watching professional sports, working out, and reading anything that helps him grow as a person and enhances his life.
